Step 1: Starting with the Feminine

Let’s get started with an introduction to the Feminine, Masculine and the best articles to begin understanding it all…

So what IS feminine? What does it look like? Can you learn how to be feminine?

So…the question that everyone keeps asking me…what IS feminine? What does being feminine look like? Well having established why femininity is important, in order to explain what it is, let’s start with what it isn’t. There are so many misperceptions about what the word feminine actually means, and I think it’s important that we address […]

What is masculinity?

Having shared my definition of Femininity some time ago…I thought it was about time I also shared my definition of Masculinity. The important thing to point out when talking about masculinity and femininity is that neither one is ‘better’ or ‘worse’ than the other – they’re just different…

Shoes…

Today I want to talk about one of my all time favourite topics….Shoes! 🙂 There are lots of different types of shoes available…there are high heels, flip flops, men’s shoes, ladies boots, wellington boots, pumps, wedges, flippers, trainers…the list goes on and on.

How to get your balance…

The reality of masculine masks…

We all know that drag is most commonly associated with describing a man in women’s clothing (before I get corrected here, yes I know that it is used the other way around too! 😉 ), but the real drag is a woman who is feminine on the inside and yet putting on a masculine mask. […]

So what's so important about femininity anyway?

Femininity – So what’s in it for me?

So what’s so important about Femininity anyway? So what’s so important about Femininity? Why should we care? We’ve been proving to everyone out there, men and women alike, that we can do anything and everything that the boys can do (often quicker and better!) for decades now…so what’s the big deal? I mean, we’ve still […]
